The New Security System


Victoria Rademacher

After a long wait, the security system for the front doors of Prep is in use. The doors are open during the times that students would regularly be entering the building, from 7:30 am to 8:00 am and 3:10 pm to 3:30 pm. Prep ID cards can be used to enter the building from 6:45 am to 5:30 pm. This means that the building can be entered about half an hour earlier in the morning. ID cards are often misplaced or lost, so now it’s a lot more important to remember where you placed them. However, if someone finds themself outside and unable to use their card, or if they are a visitor, there is a doorbell on the outside of the building that will notify someone in the office to let them in. I think this is a great idea because it is an automatic system, it takes away many safety concerns, and it really cannot do any harm.
